This practice provides procedures for constructing scenarios for assessment of inhalation exposure to airborne emissions of chemicals released from alkyd or latex paints that are used indoors.
The indoor environments covered in this practice, in terms of considerations for developing exposure scenarios, are residences and office buildings.
Elements of the exposure scenarios include the product and chemical(s) to be assessed, the indoor environment where the product is applied, application of the product, chemical emissions during and after product application, and location/activity patterns of individuals who may be exposed to the airborne chemical emissions.
Steps to be performed after developing exposure scenarios, such as monitoring, modeling and exposure/risk assessment, also are described.
